Changes to meeting rooms in Cunninghame House

A small team of staff based in Communications, Legal and Finance has been working on an experiment to design a better meeting culture.

A small team of staff based in Communications, Legal and Finance has been working on an experiment to design a better meeting culture. There have been three strands to our work:

  • To produce promotional materials including posters and postcards for distribution to staff intended to make colleagues stop and consider our meeting culture and if there are alternative options to holding face-to-face meetings.
  • To customise a large meeting room, rebranding it with materials which, based on findings from discussions with staff, promote better meetings.
  • To transform a smaller meeting room and give it a radical makeover to overhaul the traditional meeting dynamic and design a creative discussion space.

You may have seen various posters and postcards around Cunninghame House prompting you to think about the meetings you attend and if there are better, more efficient alternatives. In the coming days you will also see changes to a couple of the existing meeting rooms as we begin our design work.

The first, called The Business Room, is the large meeting room located on first floor West. The room will have bright new visual prompts and furniture to encourage timely and efficient meetings.

The second room – Room to Think – located in the medium meeting room on second floor East is quite a different proposition! This room aims to bring the outdoors inside and is designed to inspire creative thought, give staff a place to brainstorm ideas and provide a different space to hold team development sessions.

We hope you enjoy these new rooms and that you also pause to think about how you can contribute to building a better meeting culture. We will be conducting feedback over the next six months to hear what you think.
